First post please be gentle.
As of two weeks ago, I am the proud new owner of a Direct Stream Junior DAC (Redcloud on board). So far very pleased with my purchase, going through the CD collection and really enjoying the music.
Almost all my digital is standard red book CD at present… other than a couple of Chesky recordings that clearly state 24/96 on the cover. Case in point is Rebecca Pidgeon “Four Marys” disc… plays beautifully through DSJr but the screen insists it is receiving 44.1 / 16 bit stream.
I am pretty clueless with hi rez files so please bear with me… the DSJr is currently fed via Toslink from a Pioneer (stable platter style) CD player as transport.
Will a ‘standard’ CD player such as above read a 24/96 file as such?
Will a Toslink connection allow the transmission of a 24/96 stream?
Should the DSJr automatically recognise and display the file format or is there a setting I need to change?
I would appreciate any advice.
